Default A suggest : " Most Viewed" Photo

Hello Friends,

Just a simple suggest :
As You know we have an option in our profile page as follow :
Featured Photos Display: "Random" ,"Highest Rated" and "Most Recent".
I change those frequently.If You notice,the "Highest Rated" is focused on the points.But I think another interesting one can be "Most Viewed" in the featured photos display that has not focuse on the points.

I'll be glad to know your opinion.

All the Best

Mohammad, that sounds good. There is often a strong difference between any rating (in amount of critiques or smileys) and views. I think views expresses a lot about the eye catching impression of the preview.
And I think there needs to be any switching or something for "Large versions" versus "Non Large Versions" as the previous often get more views (maybe because of the special filter for panos?).
And this only for the Featured Photos Display would avoid any senseless competition.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Number of viewa has to do with search engine listing it on top page... I have a picture, that is not specially eye catching or anything special, but it just went over 100 000 views...!

Pity that top keywords by google is distorting this possibility ,giving indeed a false idea, the price you have to pay for being linked so intensive to google, on the other hand chosing those keywords liked by google will increase the visibility on the net ...

Next time I'll upload, I'll call the photo after the hotel in Paris.

Other option is to take photos of popular places . . . and it is a bit of a surprise.
I can understand The empire state building, the great wall, Gizeh, but the rest??? . . . I was so surprised I had to post this . . .

View most popular locations in Google Earth

1. Empire State Building [120591 hits]
2. Michael Jordan's house [80003 hits]
3. Great Wall of China [65549 hits]
4. Bill Gates' house [62727 hits]

25. John Travolta's Jumbolair [32203 hits]

(sorry to mess up the topic . . .my two cents . . . maybe an option to choose three photos ourselves and give a name, like "photos I really would like people to critique")
